The Museum acquires and holds in trust examples of our natural and cultural heritage for present and future generations.
These collections form the basis for the Museum's educational programs, interpretive exhibits, and special exhibitions.
It is the centerpiece of St. Johnsbury's Main Street Historic District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Museum's warm, inviting Victorian character and the exceptional diversity of its collections make it a superb example of Victorian collecting and exhibition, in effect "...a museum of museums."
In addition, the Museum houses Vermont's only public planetarium.
Established in 1961, the planetarium at the Fairbanks Museum continues to offer a variety of live, interactive presentations that interweave astronomy, mythology, folklore, and the history of science and technology.
The Museum's Northern New England Weather Center is an official NOAA reporting and broadcasting center. Museum meteorologists prepare broadcasts for radio audiences, local newspapers, and area utilities. Visitors can observe broadcast and forecast preparation in this "working exhibit."
The Museum's main exhibition hall includes
July and Aug: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. daily, 1 - 5 Sundays; planetarium 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Mon. - Fri.; 1:30 p.m. Sat. and Sun.
